Seems Solid
By , for WP 3.5.1

Seems solid plugin. Would have given five stars if not for designed interference with acronym tag (an issue to the extent abbr tag increasingly in the picture). For instance, I was unable to over-ride the small caps font of browsers (for whatever reason).

Why not set-up for user-settable formats via <span> tag. I hacked the code for the $new_text to

$new_text = "$1<span style='" . "color:blue; border-bottom: 1px dotted #000; cursor: help;" . "' . title='" . esc_attr( addcslashes( $hover_text, '\\$' ) ) . "'>$2</span>$3";

As a part solution. Seems like developer should simply reserve a specific 'hover text' style perhaps.

Works Swell!

Using the sempress theme I didn't need to add any CSS to make acronyms visible.

Very useful
By , for WP 3.4.2

Very good plugin, simple & efficient.
I'd just recommend to add a little CSS so that the accronyms are visible, I added that personally:

abbr, acronym {
	border-bottom: .1em dotted;
	cursor: help;
